THAT Cover

 

Well he finally did it.

 

Kim & Kanye – That Cover

 

Kayne’s long held dream of making it onto the cover of Vogue had been realised. He saw that as the best and final endorsement to confirm their status as a fashion & celebrity power couple. This has caused a maelstrom of controversy – twitter went into overdrive and the web was flooded with opinion as every blogger and social commentator frantically posted. Anna Wintour was vilified by many and championed by others as the April issue was dissected – everything from Kanye choosing all Kim’s clothes to the possible reasons why – everything was fodder for social media. To be honest my first response was ‘hell NO’ but then I stopped “why not?” Love them or hate them they are hugely socially relevant (and extremely hard to ignore) and this being Vogue’s ‘culture’ issue who better to illustrate the surreal and often baffling world of celebrity culture.
